How Big Is Your Brave?

Posted May 24 2013 in , , , , , , , , ,

Anyone who knows me, knows that I tend to say exactly what I’m thinking. I’m not, and I’ve never been one for not vocalizing my opinions. I’m pretty sure positive that this made me difficult as a child. And…let’s be honest, I’m pretty sure it makes me occasionally difficult as a wife. (No comment is […]

Conversations With My Kids

Posted Apr 17 2013 in , , , , , ,

There used to be a show, at least I think there was, called, Kids Say The Darndest Things. And pretty much every day in my house, is like that show because my kids are always saying something awesome. This was a snippet from a car ride conversation my son and I had last week. (I […]

Kisses Are For Kids

Posted Feb 14 2013 in , , , , ,

Happy Valentine’s Day! I don’t honestly know how many people really celebrate ‘love day’, but for all of you that do….Happy Valentine’s Day. It’s not that I’m a total Valentine’s Scrooge, hubby and I do celebrate. We’ll often buy each other cards, and sometimes we exchange gifts or use it as a great excuse for […]

Fishy Follow Through

Posted Jan 30 2013 in , , , , , , , , ,

I’m not new. I mean, I’ve been doing this parenting thing for ten and a half years now. And while I recognize that doesn’t put me in the same league as a lot of you, I’d like to think I’ve figured out a few things along the way. For example, consistency and follow through. I’m […]

Saved By The Crock Pot…Again!

Posted Jan 18 2013 in , , , , , , , ,

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you’re just crazy busy, running everywhere and trying to keep all the balls in the air? Um…yes, I know…of course you have. Everybody has. I have had one of those weeks. It just seemed to be jam packed with things that ate away all my time […]

Santa…Saved By The Book

Posted Dec 3 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

My kids still believe in Santa Claus. At least I think they do. And I’m totally good with it. I know some people who say their kids are ‘old enough to know’ and ‘it’s time they knew the truth’. To them, I say, “Why?” I mean, why ruin the magic? Is there something to gain […]

My Lapse In Judgement (a.k.a. Craft Night)

Posted Nov 27 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

I’m not a particularly crafty person. Sure, I like to do some arts and crafts projects. The key word there is ‘some’. And sure, some I’m even okay-ish at. But at no time would I consider myself to be artistic or talented in any craft like activities. In fact, during my time as a Brown […]

Don’t be hating on the Crock-Pot

Posted Nov 13 2012 in , , , , , , ,

Busy is the new normal, right? It certainly is around here. And I don’t know very many people who aren’t crazy busy trying to juggle kids activities, jobs, personal lives and don’t even mention personal time… Anyway, I don’t know about you, but we have a few nights a week where our family is going […]

When Mom Can’t Fix it

Posted Sep 27 2012 in , , , , , , , , ,

As a parent, we want to protect our kids. Obviously. When they’re newborns, we buy the best car seat we can afford and obsess about buckling it in properly. When they start crawling, we frantically run around the house putting corner protectors on the sharp tables, and jam plastic outlet protectors into every visible socket. […]

Rebel Without A Duotang

Posted Aug 28 2012 in , , , , , , , , , ,

This is back to school week for many of my friends, or more accurately, their kids. But…not for us. We happily don’t go back until next Tuesday. (ha ha..snicker snicker) I laugh now, but by Monday night I’ll be ready. As much as I love summer, it’s perfectly timed because by the end of August, […]
